Rhapsody in Color: Aida Jones Abstract Paintings

On Display September 15-November 6
Opening Reception Thursday, September 15 from 5-8PM (Background music will be provided by Steve Jones.)

Rhapsody in Color: Aida Jones Abstract Paintings is a new series of vivid, energetic abstract paintings from Maplewood-based artist Aida Jones with bold, bright, modern colors mixing straight-edged, smooth surfaces with curved, textured shapes and scribbled lines resulting in wonderful opposing tensions.

“In this new series, Jones embraces color like never before using bold and bright, dark and light hues to play against one another,” says curator, Jeremy Moss. Add to this Jones’ excellent use of color, texture and negative space, along with thoughtful attention to abstract detail and you have a thing of beauty. The exquisite execution of her pieces invariably reveals something new each time you look at them.”

As Jones puts it, “the most satisfying part of abstract art is that we all see the same things differently. My hope is that you enter the painting and go where it wants to take you.”

Jones studied at NY’s Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City. Jones is also an experienced teacher of adult painting and drawing classes. She worked as Artistic Director for the Monroe Center for the Arts, in Hoboken, NJ for eight years. She has acted as curator, board member, art director and consultant on many arts programs in the state of New Jersey. Her work has been exhibited in group and solo shows throughout New York and New Jersey and has sold to various private collections.
